Oops... I didn't mean to start an international feud
I was referring to the original post, just thanking Steve for the review.

Book Review: Little Boat Big Ocean
I'm sorry, I didn't understand your comment. I posted a book review but forgot to include ISBN. Was your exclamation mark US sarcasm? If it was, sorry but us English can do much better than that.

Another book that you may find enlightening is 'Little Boat Big Ocean' by UK author Alan Rush. A detailed transcript of his sailing log that he made whilst crossing the Pacific in 1979 from British Columbia to San Francisco to the Hawaiian Islands and beyond, single-handed in a 21ft wooden sail boat. As well as beautifully detailing his journey and the conditions he endured, it also vividly describes the time he spent working as a Relief Manager of a coconut plantation on a remote coral atoll called Fanning Island. Highly recommended read. Do let me know if you have also read it and, if so, what you thought of it.

I did a Pacific crossing and used this book to provision, for recipes, and for entertainment! The recipes are basic and practical. Lots of information about buying food in various countries also. It's an excellent addition to your floating library.

Glad to hear
We just purchased the book as we are preparing for a lot of blue water sailing. It's always good to hear someone els's take tho. What part of the sound do you cruise? I lived in Oak Harbor and cruised around the San Juans.
